An anime or manga in which, rather than fighting, the characters play a game or sport. Said game or sport '''will''' be SeriousBusiness sometimes resulting in physically unwarranted pain, injury or death. Expect a lot of MundaneMadeAwesome. Frequently leads to a TournamentArc. Sometimes overlaps with {{Mons}} and ToBeAMaster. Because the vast majority of characters are male, sports anime and manga have become synonymous with [[YaoiFangirl fangirl]] fodder along with [[OtomeGame otome games]] and [[Yaoi]].

* ''{{Manga/Legendz}}'' revolves around a Pokémon-esque monster fighting video game. The focus of the series is more on the monsters themselves, but most people in the series (at first) only know about the game and not that the creatures are real.

* ''BattleClub'' is about wrestling. Its also by the same gentleman who wrote IkkiTousen, so if know anything about that, you probably already have a good idea about [[FanService what is in this manga]].
* ''BattleSpirits'' is a card game by Bandai, which spawned several anime series. It did get a limited run in English but Bandai's lack of advertising, and the failure to even bother giving stores the cards to sale led it to be a wasted effort and discontinued in English after only the first set. It's still going strong in Japan though.
